Soil Microorganisms

Post  donnainzone5 on Wed 24 Apr 2013 - 10:08

I've been trying to convince an "old row gardener" friend of mine of the virtues of SFG.

He doesn't understand where necessary soil microorganisms come from with Mel's Mix. In fact, he even asked what we used, chewing gum?

It seems to me that these microorganisms are present in organic material, such as compost.

Can any one chime in on this subject?

According to the book "Teaming With Microbes" Compost contains the key soil food web organisms and hold as well as cycle plant nutrients.
I highly recommend the book.
